If everyone is on board with a re-write, then I think we can argue that
the Firefox OS email app backend developed by myself and others covers
the re-write architecture case. (tb-planning-participant-wise, :squib
was involved with the pre-conversations work, and we switched over to
:jcranmer's excellent JSMime lib for parsing.) It was informed by years
of working on Thunderbird and with knowledge of gecko internals. And
I've been planning to get back to that after a breather following the
Firefox OS shutdown.
If something more evolutionary is desired, then I'm not sure we're going
to find someone with more expertise and experience than :rkent. (Unless
:bienvenu decides to become a Thunderbird hacker again!)
Sounds promising. Presumably you're talking about the Gaia/Email
app? Or something else? Are there any details available? Like for
the re-architecture plan itself - is it complete? And/or, how much
work has already been done and what is left to do?<br>
